Welcome Back to the Chaos of Manila

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I am back to the pollution, noise and the cacophony of space that is Manila (generic name for the Philippines). Hay, I miss this kind of chaos. The unruly crowds, the dilapidated bus (the one I rode from Manila to Pampanga), and the one I really missed is the heat that causes excessive sweating. Gosh, how I love to sweat!

Hay, I am having major displacement syndrome but I know I will adjust as the week progresses but funny, I now miss Minneapolis! hahaha.. I miss having my roommate 24/7 with me, the apartment, YWCA, the friends we hang out with and of course, Haskells! - the local liquor store.

For every experience, there must be a playlist of songs that you will have on your mind, a soundtrack of the events that transpired. Right now I have 4 songs that make me reminisce about Minneapolis. These songs are always on our friends' radio when we ride with them so these are the songs of Minneapolis 2006 for me:

1. Smack that
2. How to Save A Life
3. Chasing Cars
4. Far Away

We're going back in a few days and I can't wait for the next part of the journey.

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.
